Issue 23: Dec 2012

©2008-2012 SBF logo Dear ShowBiz Friend,

Merry Christmas!!!
Hope this new issue finds you in your best Christmas mood and shape!

"...Another year over...", as the late John Lennon sung in one of his most successful songs ever. Where did it go? We might add... and then, as for the past years, we find ourselves looking back at all the things that might have made it a very special year, just a transition year, or simply a year to forget quickly...
Anyway, wherever your year falls in, you know that the right attitude is to always look forward and try to make next year, "The Year"!

This is exactly SBF's wish to you for the new year!
May 2013 be a year that sees you shine and most of all the year in which you will be finally doing all you've been wanting to do and have sometimes, somehow, struggled to achieve!

Just one 'little' thing we ask in return:
whenever you can, make sure you allow yourself a little time to sit down and enjoy SBF, not just because you owe it to yourself... but particularly because the latest research has scientifically proven that SBF fights 'free radicals'!!! Yes, SBF keeps you young and happy!!!

Last, but not least, our traditional warmest welcome to all 'new' SBF members. Have fun, share your memories with other members, enjoy SBF and...
